Sarah is a laboratory scientist turned educator. She came to the Concord Consortium with experience as a laboratory scientist, high school science teacher, and science assessment writer.
Sarah is interested in just about everything, but science is one of those things that she’s particularly passionate about. As a scientist, she knows that doing science can be exciting (the thrill of the hunt for answers (and more questions!)). She aims to bring a bit of that excitement into the classroom with her work at the Concord Consortium, developing innovative, engaging curricula and assessments, working with teachers during field testing, and assisting with the educational research.
Sarah has worked on the RAPID (Supplement to Science of Atoms and Molecules), Geniverse, Next-Generation Molecular Workbench, LOOPS, High-Adventure Science, and GEODE projects. She holds a B.S. in Biological Sciences (Animal Physiology) from Cornell University and an M.S. in Biology (Immunotoxicology) from Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (Virginia Tech), and her favorite assay is the ELISPOT.
